Crystals can have so many meanings don’t you think? Whether you believe in their healing properties, or just like the look of them they’ve been used for thousands of years in so many different ways.
I started to get interested in them when my friend Victoria Fox of Miss Fox Melbourne introduced them to the spa. At first I liked them simply as decoration, but when I started to read a little bit more about their various purported properties I figured there was no harm wearing them during my pregnancy, and putting them around the home. I selected the below because they suited me at a time in my life when their energy was what I needed most, but again if that’s all just mumbo-jumbo to you, then I’d say just choose the crystals you like the look of. No harm having pretty things around the house is there?
Malachite is a stone of transformation, protection and can be used to draw out emotion. It’s protection properties are especially helpful during pregnancy and childbirth which was why I chose to wear it.
Rose quartz is said to promote love and rhodonite(the darker pink) is also a stone that promotes unconditional love, balance and harmony.
Moonstone is a stone of protection, especially during childbirth, pregnancy, and travel at sea. It is a stone of calm and relief from emotional stress. It is also associated with love of all kinds.
Jade is a stone of the heart. As such it is related to the heart chakra and has a beneficial effect on all heart chakra related issues.
Labradorite is a considered by mystics to be a stone of transformation and magic. It is said to clear, balance and protect the aura, as well as being an excellent stone for general protection.
Unakite(green and pink stones) is a stone with gentle but powerful energy. It’s considered to be very helpful for pregnancy and childbirth with strong protection properties.
I’ve used definitions from Crystal Meanings to help with this blog post.
